political theater there. the president appeared with merkel from germany trying to show unity but the fact of the matter is there's a lot of disunity. back home. the voting public in germany is very split on this. they think the sanctions have gone far enough. they rely on russia for a lot of their energy as does a lot of europe. they're worried about prices spiking. although there's an attempt to present a united front, the european and americans interests are diverging here. >> the point of today was to present the unity but we should be clear that the type of sanctions we're talking about that would be tough are down the road at this point. the sector sanctions are if russia makes a move over the border into ukraine. we're talking about individual sanctions and right now it looks like those aren't doing much to change putin's calculus. >> the goal post versus moved throughout this thing. if russia goes in it's changed. >> always backwards. look, obama has adopted the worst possible way to approach a coalition than an adversary which is the lowest common denominator. he insists on unity.
